Nigerians also took to the post made by Dr Akunyili, where the user left the threat, to comment after the post went viral.

Akunyili was killed in Anambra by unknown gunmen on Tuesday. A social media video has claimed that the DSS was responsible for the attack on the medical doctor.
However, Dr. Peter Afunanya, DSS spokesman, in a statement on Wednesday, described the claim as “spurious and illogical”.
